Every night I read a chapter in a book to my girlfriend. Currently we’re on Dresden Files: Dead Beat. We’re both big fans of Jim Butcher’s writing s and I’m hoping that we get to play a game of the Dresden Files RPG by Evil Hat. If you’ve never met the Evil Hat crew, they’re some of the most fun gamers I have had to privilege of meeting, and the Dresden Files RPG is the first FATE game that I have wanted to play longer than a 1 shot game.
More relevant to the Pathfinder RPG, I’ve been reading Open Design’s Imperial Gazetteer, specifically the section on the Ghoul Imperium. My current Kingmaker game is the first game I’ve run without a significant presence of undead. Oh, but how I want to put the Ghoul Imperium right underneath my players’ feet. I have considered replacing the final chapter with an undead nation underground and the guys at Open Design did a wonderful job of making that decision that much more tempting. I would have a ball doing this, even if my players would not.
I am also rereading the Universe of Babylon 5 book by Mongoose Publishing from their Traveller line. My company publishes for Traveller as well — I prefer Babylon 5 to the 3rd Imperium setting. Just my own personal preference. Shadows lurking about, Drazi being hard heads, Teeps cheating at gambling. You know how it goes. Also seeing how Mongoose put together an alternate setting book for the Traveller system is helpful for me to develop my own setting.
So what are you reading?
